Tim Cook promised at the Apple “Gather round” Event that they were adding new features that let customers do even more with Siri on HomePod, including the ability to search by lyrics, set multiple timers, make and receive phone calls, locate your iPhone and more.
The HomePod already delivers the highest-fidelity audio quality and more immersive soundstage than traditional stereo speakers, so making Siri smarter is a must for Apple.
To update the HomePod software simply open the Home app, force press on the HomePod tile and hit detail’s.
You will see HomePod 11.4.1 underneath hit install then agree to the terms and conditions and wait for the update to happen like you would on the iPhone. During the update you will see the Siri light swirl.
